(Minneapolis, MN) — The Minneapolis Department of Education is suing Feeding Our Future for 583-thousand dollars in legal fees the agency spent defending what leaders call a “sham” lawsuit. The nonprofit sued the Education Department in 2020 after the state cut its funding following concerns about a large increase in the number of poor children the organization claimed to be feeding during the pandemic. The Education Department claims that Feeding Our Future’s lawsuit was a distraction to keep the state from discovering a massive fraud scheme by the nonprofit that cost the government more than 250-million dollars.
